Eating his words
If a week is a long time in politics then it certainly makes a huge difference in the Olympics.
A few days ago the French President was in London teasing the David Cameron at Britain's failure to match France's medal haul. Britain at that time was in 21st spot on the medals table, France was third.
Today, Team GB is third in the medal table with 14 golds, 7 silvers and 8 bronze, a total of 29. France is fifth with 22 medals of which 8 are gold.
It has been a fantastic effort from the whole team and an historic achievement last night from Jessica Ennis, Mo Farah and Greg Rutherford on track and field, the cyclists, the rowers and swimmers. They, the other medal winners and all our athletes have done us proud. But it ain't over yet.
